Excellent shot, I’ve never been fortunate enough to get this close to one.

Thank you, Wallace! Yes, this bird to hard to get close to and this one is not as close as it looks, I did a massive cropping from 24MP down to 1MP!  :p

That surely is a unique and pretty bird.
Very nice

Thank you :-) I appreciate the gracious words. Here is one last kind. This is a Guinea Turaco trying to blend in.

Those guys have been so elusive for me, Shalu. Your shot really is extremely well done.
